Commercial Litigation. We represent businesses in a variety of disputes. Examples include defending a mortgage lender in multiparty litigation arising from post-closing claims relating to a multi-unit apartment complex, representing a service provider in litigation arising from transfers of funds via the Internet, representing a hospital in a dispute with a large defense contractor relating to the purchase of a health care information system, and defending a purchaser of a jet aircraft in a dispute with a broker regarding sales commissions.
Insurance Litigation. We represent insurers in business litigation in federal court in many parts of the United States, including actions related to the sale of structured settlement annuities. We also have defended disability insurance claims, both those brought under policies issued to individuals and those brought under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). We have obtained several significant published decisions in these areas.
Constitutional Litigation. We have represented clients in litigation of constitutional matters, including representing a public official in First Amendment-based Section 1983 litigation and representing political party officials in a matter of first impression before Maryland's highest court regarding gubernatorial power under the Maryland Constitution.
